Founded in 2014, VERIDIA is an alternative band led by the powerful vocals and presence of frontwoman Deena Jakoub. After two EPs, several hit singles, numerous tours and festival appearances, the band recently released their first full-length album, The Beast You Feed, recorded with multi-platinum producer Matt Squire and featuring Amy Lee of Evanescence on the song “I’ll Never Be Ready.” The album debuted at #14 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and #38 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.
